Rest to rage. Meditate to work. Cleanse to get dirty.

Enough preaching about self-deprivation. No more striving for bodily purity. Who has the patience-or the time!-for strict dietary restrictions and hours of meditation? Let's get real. These tactics just don't work-at least not for long. But that doesn't mean health and happiness are unobtainable.

Most often you just need an anxiety buster you can do while running down the street. Or a yoga pose you can do at your desk. Or a way to debloat what feels like an alien baby in your abdomen. Retox isn't about changing who you are or denying life's pleasures. It's about tailoring sensible, scientifically-based health practices to the life you already live. It's about working hard, playing harder, and renewing your balance and energy so you can do it all again.
